latino voters up compared to just two months ago. they find 45% of latino voters say they're more likely to vote, up 8% from just ten weeks ago. the poll also found support for the president matching an all-time high this year with 73% choosing president obama. let me bring in msnbc and nbc latino contributor victoria defrancesco soto, a senior fellow at the university of texas. >> greetings from austin, chris. >> an article in "the washington post" talked about president obama's election strategist david plouffe being so crucial. it depends on plouffe's ability to activate the latino, african-american and young voters who have a more erratic track record shows up at the polls and thus often not up counted as likely voters. the article says plouffe took that voter base for granted. do you agree with the poll. are you sengsing growing enthusiasm among latino voters? >> we're seeing growing enthusiasm, and in particular we see that enthusiasm grow over the past ten weeks. latino decisions has been tracking latino enthusiasm for the past ten weeks. it started out at lower level and increase

're probably not going to win there. and one of the primary reasons is because latinos in that state are just fed up with republicans. not so much on rhetoric, but because of the policies how do you fix that in your party and how frustrated are you? >> i'm not quite sure if it is policies and i'll tell you why. remember that the president's been very good. he promised in his first 12 months, he gave his word, to the country, and to the latino population in the country in particular that within the first 12 months he was going to do comprehensive immigration reform. he didn't do it. but by the way, look, look at senator reid's election. he did exceedingly well latino population because he promised he was going to present and pass the dream act. he did it. he did a version of it, by the way, without talking to anybody else. but then after that, after the election, he doesn't mention it anymore. he doesn't do it anymore. he hasn't even proposed it anymore. so we see this time and time again. so it really is rhetoric. it's not policy. on the policies, look at the increase in poverty. the group of
turnout. we have a new poll that shows 8% of latinos have already voted. furthermore, the poll finds that 87% of latinos say they're certain to vote by november the 6th. could that level of turnout do you think, lily, give the president a significant margin of victory in places like florida and nevada? >> absolutely. and we've already talked about electoral maps here, and what happens with latinos is because the market is so concentrated in three key states, in this case colorado, nevada, and florida, which are critical for deciding who makes it to the white house, those are exactly the states where we are starting to see some early numbers. some of the, you know, obama campaign officials have said there's been up to, you know, 15% more early turnout by latinos since they opened in florida. so it's definitely a big, big number, and it's going to continue to rise. you know, colorado voters, you know registered voters that are latino are up by 15% which is a big number. it will make a big difference and we are more enthusiastic, the latest numbers are 45% of all hispanics that are regi
. intimidating billboards going up in african-american and latino communities in cleveland ohio saying if you go to vote, you might get arrested for x., y. and z. reasons. then you've got misleading ads like the one we showed you. this is actually run by a lot of the governments in pennsylvania, they're running radio ads and t.v. ads saying hey, you know what, you might need photo i.d. that's not true. finally, we had one last one employer pressure. that's from the actual c.e.o.'s. remember mitt romney speaking to them saying if there's one thing you can do to help you can tell their employees if they know what's good for them, they better vote on our side. the c.e.o.'s have complied and sent these threatening emails saying you're going to be fired unless you vote for our guy. that's not all. wait until you get ahold of mar copiopia county, where sheriff joe is. they've been accused of doing an enormous amount of antti latino actions. watch this. >> last week, we heard from a concerned voter in democracy 2012 complaining the wrong election date was written in spanish on her voter i.d. cards. the
to break. they will talk a lot about appealing to women, appealing to latinos. throughout the course of the 2012 campaign, we have heard a lot about the strategy of appealing to women and latinos to eke out a victory for democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic and republican areas of the state? guest: denver and boulder tend to be democratic. the fifth biggest county for democrats with voter registration is el paso county. that is typically viewed as sort of a republican stronghold, and it is. increasingly, we have seen the ski area communities start to turn democratic. host: a lot of headlines and focus on early voting in this presidential contest. does colorado have it? guest: we do and we have mail in voting about two million people voted early absentee in the 2008 election. that is expected to grow to two 0.5 million this election cycle. keep in mind that colorado has about 2.8 million active voters. about three-quarters of the vote should be conducted in colorado. host: on election day, how do people vote? guest: there are three ways, optical machines, scanning m
-income, african-american, latino families. they're just trying to make ends meet. they don't have much access to political power. our election season is the one time where they feel they can have a say in our democracy. today our enormous disparities are reinforced by our political disparities. >> that's supposed to be the one moment that's maybe moving out. i ought to be able to say every voice counts equally in the ballot box. is that changing? i was looking at the amount of outside spending. if you look at the center for responsive politics about shadow money, you just see that this is new, right? yes, there's always been money in politics, but look at the explosion of it over the course of the past couple of election cycles, in particular 2012. lesley, do ordinary people still have a voice when there's this much loud spending going on? >> i think you mentioned a point about the 915,000 political ads. what wasn't added to that is it's a 44% increase from 2008. you wake up in the morning, your twitter feed is full of political ads. the truth is, all your mailings and everything else, i do w
obama is ahead by 50 points among latinos, but their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. that was another aspect of last night. >> glen, my thinking had been, while it was mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was like a three- or four- cushion shot in pool. is ohio what we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a really good question, charlie, because it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. there is the reason no republican has won the presidency without winning ohio. is even more true. i entered this election cycle believing that there were three key states instead of just florida and ohio. i added a virginia to that list. if they are at the top, the next half level down his north carolina. -- is north carolina. look, clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia to build a very competitive state race now. ohio is a place where he does need a significant comeback. well taken,s are that for many voters, the election started last night. if he is going to
of figures suggest, in 1996, u t austin continued to use race in admissions and had a black and latino representation along the line of 18% combined. in the next year, 1997, university of texas was banned from using race by a lower court decision. they saw a decline in racial and ethnic diversity using socio-economic status alone in their admissions process. but by 2004, using socio- economic considerations in admissions and what is known as the top 10% plan, where students to graduate in the top 10% of their high school is automatically admitted, you see racial and ethnic diversity, black and latino representation actually increases above what texas had achieved in 1996. now, we are very clear in the report that part of the reason that there are greater levels of racial and ethnic diversity into a dozen for is that the latino population growth in texas during that time period. as a policy matter, i think it is fair to say that texas ought to be pursuing other race- neutral methods of increasing racial and ethnic diversity so that it more closely mirrors the state's population. as a le
talk about research and p.o.s. does the polling for one sub-group, latinos -- >> so you're the conspirators on the left wing of the polling. >> barack obama is ahead by 50 points with latinos. the question is, their enthusiasm was less than 2008. that is another aspect. >> my thinking had been, while it was mathematically possible for romney to get the electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was like a three or four-cushion shot in pool. is ohio what we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question. it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. i entered this election cycle believing that there were three key states instead of just florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list. the next half level down is north carolina. clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. all i know is someplace where he does need a significant comeback. fred's points are well-taken. for a lot of voters, the election started last night. if he is going to h
out is latinos are underpolled nationwide partly because of a language barrier. you don't get an accurate reading and we talked about before in 2010 colorado, harry reid, a lot of latinos there. they trailed sharon engel by three points at the end and he wins. they're not correctly polling latinos and hispanics. virginia is a huge thing. 80% of the state, and a 92% increase since 2000. if you see an irregularity or differentiation from the polling in colorado, virginia, florida and perhaps florida on election night because they didn't correctly poll lati teenotices. >> virginia will come down to the d, democrats. 200,000 defense jobs are on the line with that sequestration looming on the horizon. the president knows that. i think george allen and tim kainen that. george allen has a new ad talking about it. >> the defense cuts tim kaine are threatening over 200,000 virginia jobs. the solution is to raise taxes. that will cost even more jobs. >> i think there's making a big deal about this because then it's crucial in the state economy. it will trickle up to the presidential ele
in to this column today on the strength of three different factors. two of them having to do with the latino vote. the demographics have shifted in favor of democrats even since 2008. our friend nate cohn pointed out 69% to 65.5% over 4 years, 150,000 more african-americans registered and 300,000 more registered hispanics. plurality of which are registered as democrats and demographics moved and also latinos are energized about the election. 87% nationwide of registered latinos say they'll cast a ballot. 45% said they're more excited than they were in 2008. the numbers up and increasing week by week and very encouraging for the president in florida but, you know, the last factor that actually caused me to move the state in to the blue column is sandy and that's why i moved it just today because i think florida's a state where people really understand the importance of fema, the importance of an effective and strong national response to disasters and i think the president's leadership here as close as the race is in florida could be enough to move it in his favor. >> well, not surprisingly, my rac
. particularly, i went door-to-door with latino canvas workers. they were just getting it out and working like crazy. i think the obama campaign has got their stuff together there. >> jennifer: so many people have made up their mind and acted upon that early. >> in nevada, another state where the latino vote is really changing the picture. >> jennifer: you were there. you saw some of that, too. >> just last week. crowds of californians are going there. have gone there for the last three weekends, particularly to with a shaw county which is a swing county near reno and down by vegas. those two areas are just a hotbed of activity right now. >> jennifer: all of the swing states, all of the stuff is going on even while everybody's attention is focused on the east. >> completely. >> jennifer: and do you think -- i mean we've seen obviously the president -- being presidential. we've seen mitt romney as well. are there missteps here? >> on the president's side, he looked picture perfect today. a picture of leadership. a pictur
about appealing to women, appealing to latinos. throughout the course of the 2012 campaign, we have heard a lot about the strategy of appealing to women and latinos to eke out a victory for democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic and republican areas of the state? guest: denver and boulder tend to be democratic. the fifth biggest county for democrats with voter registration is el paso county. that is typically viewed as sort of a republican stronghold, and it is. increasingly, we have seen the ski area communities start to turn democratic. host: a lot of headlines and focus on early voting in this presidential contest. does colorado have it? guest: we do and we have mail in voting about two million people voted early absentee in the 2008 election. that is expected to grow to two 0.5 million this election cycle. keep in mind that colorado has about 2.8 million active voters. about three-quarters of the vote should be conducted in colorado. host: on election day, how do people vote? guest: there are three ways, optical machines, scanning machines and paper ballots. hos
thinks the latino vote in nevada would do it. that would put the president over the top there. if he didn't get nevada for some reason, the president's options would be colorado, virginia, new hampshire or florida. the president with an easier path. what about governor romney. let's leave this one blue. can governor romney get there if ohio is going blue. can romney get all the way to 270 when the president's already at 275. well, he would have to win florida, he would have to win virginia. then you're at 255, 254. he would have to win colorado. that would put him in play at 263. then from there, how does governor romney get over the top? he would if he won wisconsin, paul ryan's home state. 10 electoral votes right there. logic being if the president's winning ohio, these are two very similar states. so wisconsin would be one model and let's just say for the sake of argument that one did stay blue, that puts the president right there. governor romney would have to get there by winning in nevada, not enough, and new hampshire. so you see governor romney would essentially almost have to ru
. with all that information, campaign is able to build teams of like-mindalled volunteers, latinos for obama, pacific islanders for obama. sportsmen for obama. all being recruited as part of the obama ground game. they meet online and then gather in the real world. >> i think we're expecting a few more people who are going to get started so we can keep on with our agenda. >> sreenivasan: this group of volunteers who cared about lesbian, gay, by sexual and transgender issues was preparing to go out and canvass local voters in support of the president. it seems whether it's dashboard or the mobile apps, they serve two purposes: one, to make sure your teams are in communication with one another and another to learn about the voters you're going out and reaching. >> absolutely. we're always going to be collecting information. because that's how, you know, we extend our reach. that's how we can continue to communicate with that person. just one phone call or one email is not going to get that person to be... to the polls on election day. >> sreenivasan: for years campaigns have dreamed of being a
and a lot of the modelling has underestimated the number of latinos and african-american voters. we have 8 million more latino voters, for example, voting in 2012 than we did in 2008. most of the polling models i've seen don't account for those kinds of democrgraphic changes. that's a reason no matter republican, democrat, no matter who you are, get out and vote. vote early if you can. if you can't make sure you get to the polls early on election day. that's the way this thing is going to get settled. >> okay, karen finny, always good to talk with you. >>> here's what we've been asking all of you all day. it comes on the heels of what i was discussing with karen. the popular vote versus the electoral vote. could it be a split election? here's what you had to say about it. rich mow net replies "can't help but think that high turnout in battle ground states may make popular vote versus electoral vote possible. advantage president. melvin tweets "unfortunately it could be. i also believe that indiana will go pbo again. one of these days indiana is going to matter." jim b writes "a popular ele
of this nation. as i got older, they reminded me of the clear truth. there were blacks, whites, latinos and asians. there were a gay folks and street books all marching for justice in america. they told me that you need to remember this from the beaches of normandy were there were black folks and white folks and gay folks. you need to remember this. when people were fighting to expand, it everybody involved. we knew we were all in it together. deep and real african proper was true. if you want to go fast you go alone, if you want to go far you go to together. so now it is time we go together. the dream of america is still just as urgent. this is still just as real. we are not finished with this nation yet. the word of our founders, liberty and justice for all, are still as operational as long as there is a person in this country that does not enjoy the same rights as their brother or their sister when it comes to voting rights, when it comes to marriage rights, when it comes to civil rights. when it comes to social security and tax law and visitation and adoption. as long as there are t
latino and an msnbc contributor. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you, reverend. >> david, what do these latest tapes tell you about governor romney? >> i'm glad you played that second tape. if you listen to it carefully and think about it for a moment, it says that mitt romney wants america to compete with china for having an environment more hospitable for business, but why do businesses go to china? they go because there are low wages and weak labor protections and nonexistent environmental standards. so, is he suggesting that's what he wants for american workers and american consumers? i mean, it's not a well thought out idea. certainly nothing he will talk about in the campaign. and since we're in the closing days, probably nothing he'll be pressed on. but he's saying, hey, guys, we have to be as bad as china in order to get businesses to come here rather than go there. >> and it's also a mischaracterization of his position and the president's. another thing that struck me is when i heard mrs. romney at the fund-raiser say the president isn't adult enough to lead the country.
there are women of color who tend to vote for democratic. even among groups like latinos, latinos are voting democratic them latino males. there are younger and older woman. there are really three generations. they've both republicans and obama has a problem with seniors for some time. if younger people vote, they vote democratic. host: we showed that "washington times "headline where he might not get -- where obama may not get big backing because 38% of voters said it will death in vote which is down from 66% four years ago. guest: feel look at 2010 an off- year elections -- 6.6 million young women who voted in 2008 did not show up in 2010. a 11 million on married women who had voted in 2008 did not show up. we need them back in 2012. host: what are their top issues? we had a poll this morning in the newspaper that showed the most important issue that impact women and abortion topped the list. guest: was flabbergasted -- flabbergasted by that paul. -- i was flabbergasted by that poll. the newest poll showed 47% of women said their top issue is some kind of woman's issue like abortion or bir
. >> to hear people saying that some of us latinos got in here easily and the only reason we got in here is because of our race, that's really disappointing. we work just as hard as anyone else did to get here to ut. >> reporter: conservative groups say it's not just about getting in. the u.s. civil rights commission says studies show that using racial preferences can hurt minorities by starting them out near the bottom of their classes. >> if they're towards the bottom of whatever class they go to, they are much more likely to give up on an ambitiono major in science and engineering. >> almost a decade ago, then justice sandra day o'connor wrote a majority opinion that said that the university of michigan law school had a compelling interest in promoting class diversity and suggested affirmative action might still be needed for another 25 years. o'connor has since left the court, leading to speculation that the court's conservatives could now strike a blow to preferences. joe johns, cnn, washington. >> thank you, joe johns. so jeff toobin, this is the question. does this texas case rais
registrants, young people, latinos, african-americans, are really getting out there and taking advantage of this. >> iwant to open this up to our little panel here. richard, we were talking before the break about how much the president in stepping into the role of commander in chief would inform and enthuse swing voters and you seem to think this is something people vote on, this does change minds. >> yeah. look, we're not talking here about driving the base, right. completely different discussion about sporadic and determined voters. but in that sliver of undecideds, this whole set of events, the kind of presidential acts and executive decisions that he has to move forward with over the next couple days, make him look bigger, make him look like a national figure in a way that the debates made him look smaller. and that's what mitt romney has a very hard thing to come out against as in any equivalent manner. debates have that equalizing effect. there's no way mitt romney can stage anything that will look as presidential as what the president can do. in that sense you have the advantages
the latino community but people across the state. >> finally pennsylvania, there's a lot of talk out of pennsylvania that senator bob casey is in some difficulty, that pennsylvania is closer than it should be from a democratic perspective. >> for any of these states mitt romney has been trying to compete in ohio, trying to -- it's been hard nut for that campaign to crack. they haven't been able to. now they're playing this bluffing game of trying to expand the math. our belief is the math is set. same states we've been talking about. no way i will dye my hair black and wear a fake mustache if they win pennsylvania, michigan or new mexico. these are not states we're concerned about. of course we're on the ground, competing for every vote but this is a bluff by the romney team. >> we've got a jen psaki and david axelrod bet. this will be interesting. >> it will be. >> you're watching live pictures of staten island as you can see quite a change there as well from this storm. and we'll be right back. loating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day >> question t these dig
the senate bennett model of 2010 where women, the youth vote and latinos came out in great numbers for senator bennett and they'll come out for president obama because he understands their hopes and dreams. >> 1 million folks in your state voted so far republicans have had about 3% lead over democrats in terms of overall ballots cast, that's according to a recent report of kwgn. >> that's right. we shouldn't be worried. in 2010 against senator bennett in the same position and slightly behind early on and we gained momentum. our people were at the doors and tracking and tracing the ballots and the formula that we put in place in 2010 will be the same formula that leads to president obama's win here next tuesday. >> senator udall, thank you very much. greatly appreciate your time. thank you, sir. >> thank you. >>> everyone is wondering the impact of sandy on the election. well, history shows it largely depends, of course, on response. salon.com has research that shows voters punish leaders for failing to act and reward those who respond effectively. we are joined by presidential hist
